Racial preferences are not just ill advised, they are positively sadistic.

Only the preening self-regard of University of California administrators and faculty is served by such an admissions travesty.
Preference practitioners are willing to set their “beneficiaries” up to fail and to subject them to possible emotional distress, simply so that the preference dispensers can look out upon their “diverse” realm and know that they are morally superior to the rest of society.

Your Say

They're self-violating too. If your principle is that its wrong to harm or limit people based on their racial makeup or ethnic background... why are you keeping Asians and Whites out of college based solely on those characteristics?

Correct Racial Preference is a dogma of their religion, so it isn't amenable to logic. As long as The Narrative is served, results on the ground are irrelevant.

I am just now beginning to see how grades are inflated in public schools, regardless of the racial make-up. My daughter was a freshman at the local public high school, the same high school her brothers attended. She took honors courses and got As and Bs.

For a whole variety of reasons, I decided to pull her and homeschool her for the remainder of high school. Now I am her teacher. And now it is revealed that those As and Bs were not merited. She is probably a C student, and her composition skills are a low C. What on earth were those teachers looking at to give her those inflated grades?!

Hopefully I'm not too late in correcting the damage done to my daughter by the public school system. I am too late for my sons. Thankfully I've chosen a rigorous curriculum to right this ship. And thankfully my daughter and I will not be subject to the rotten Common Core 'standards'. I would never, ever put another child into the public school system ANYWHERE.

I got A++ on my papers in high school and when I got to Calvin College, I got a D on my first essay in a writing course. I was shocked, but I learned an awful lot in a hurry.

The most depressing thing I finally realized is all those Supreme Court justices and leaders I used to think got such great educations... got the same crappy schooling I did.
